CoveredBridgeWorkers at Covered Bridge Potato Chips in the Canadian city of Hartland, New Brunswick have been on strike since January 4 in response to the company's  continued refusal to bargain for a fair first contract with a living wage and basic workplace rights including seniority. Workers at the plant voted to join the UFCW Canada in December 2013 - more than two years ago, but the company still refuses to negotiate. 

Despite court decisions reaffirming the union's rights, Covered Bridge has repeatedly violated the provincial Labour Act and intimidated union supporters.
